Anti-ManManner: Philly indie freaks sign to Waits stable
Oddball indie-rockers Man Man - straight outta Philadelphia with a swampy slap o' the thighs - have put pen to paper on a deal with Anti, home to Tom Waits and Neko Case.
Each of the band's five members had a little something to say on the matter:
Honus (vocals/keys/etc): “Championship Rings!”
Chang Wang (sax/etc): “Wow! Yes!”
Sergei Sogay (bass/etc): “Warm Socks!”
Cougar (guitar/trumpet): “Pizza Party!”
Pow Pow (drums/etc): “Ladies Please!”
Brilliant, lads, brilliant. If you're yet to become familiar with Man Man's doo-wop gypsy-rocking Modest Mouse-ish swagger pop (?!), then clicky click.
The quintet are currently putting the finishing touches to what will be their debut album for Anti - expect it on shelves in the spring of 2008.
